Coming from Behind to Lead

The Africa Women’s Sports Summit is the brainchild of respected Ghanaian female Sports Journalist, Juliet Bawuah.

The programme is designed to bring leading female sports names and aspiring ones together, for a day’s session on career and coming from behind to lead. This has become necessary as a deliberate measure to ensure that more women are shored upfront in the ever changing ecosystem of sports.
